Our History


Trinity Lutheran Church came into being because of the faith of the American Lutheran Church that the North Brevard County area could eventually support an ALC church. In the early 1960s the area was experiencing a population explosion due to the construction of America’s spaceport on Cape Canaveral and the upper stretches of Merritt Island.

In 1961 the Luther League of the American Lutheran Church chose to sponsor a mission in Florida. A plot of ground was purchased in Titusville where the church was built. Trinity Lutheran Church was dedicated on March 4, 1962 as an American Lutheran Church. Rev. Claude Tejan was its first pastor. The first annual congregational meeting was held Jan 11, 1963.

Over the years that followed, the church buildings and the congregations had grown, as well as our list of pastors.

The membership has waxed and waned over the years from an original membership in 1962 of less than 100  to numbering over 400 in its first decade.

The church continues today on the same property and in the same original structure. Several building projects enhancing the building have taken place throughout the years. Recent projects include sanctuary and kitchen remodeling, as well as a new narthex and fellowship hall. In 2015, a memorial garden as well as a roadside garden with three crosses were completed.
